Yes, Cptr, agree. In my experience losing a child over losing a fetus involves two very different grieving processes. One is centered around a real person who is forever lost to this world, the other is more centered around self; hopes and dreams of a potential that was not realized.
It is not worth arguing or one-upping, imo, because it is very personal and individual.
Which brings it full circle to women deciding to gestate or terminate their unwanted/unhealthy pregnancies.
But to make a blanket statement applicable to all pregnant women and then try to remove civil rights because one experienced a miscarriage is just not a healthy coping strategy. jmo of course.
(think I've offered condolences prior and hope you remember)

I was replying to this:" Of course the surgical procedure that results in the death of a gestating human is way different then a natural miscarriage. " THE procedure--not the variety of procedures.

But another tenet of objectivism is that we are all responsible for ourselves and those we accept responsibility for. A fetus cannot be responsible for itself, and its existence is decided by whether the woman decides to take that responsibility; she must take responsibility for her own life as well.

Of course, it's only meaningful if you follow ayn rand, which is virtually impossible in a cohesive society.

You can expect a child, but you never expect the spanish inquisition.

You did. I'm not sure why Sue did not. Society often calls pregnant women "expecting".
http://www.thefreedictionary.com/expecting
From the link:
1. To look forward to the birth of one's child. Used in progressive tenses: His sister is expecting in May.
2. To be pregnant. Used in progressive tenses: My wife is expecting again.

It seems straight forward to me.

I was married and got myself tested like 20 years ago because of the time lag on symptoms. But MAINLY because a,local dentist ..not mine.
Had given it to his patients..I had had a lit of dental work .
Thank God it had not gotten me.
But if this day and age ..I was sexually active would definitely get tested .
My young friend was dating an HIV positive man...And not using proper protection...thank God. She got tested ..And dumped him
He. Was bisexual. And not at all monogamous.
And a total creep to her..lost an eye from one of his lovers who had aBB gun
My friend took him to surgery..stayed by His side..
Then he moved in with her best friend who had a nice apartment.

I used to have all her books, including "the necessity of atheism". Objectivism has some good points, but like most philosophies and religions, just isn't practical when strictly adhered to.

Around here, people use similar critters as sensors; to know if someone is prowling nearby. These are seen a lot in apartment complexes. Have seen frogs that ribbit when you walk by and heard an owl that hoots when you are near. It's actually unobtrusive and looks decorative, but the sound alerts you to someone being nearby.

If we don't agree we are anti feminist ..And that is just NOT true for many of us..especially us women who grew up in the sixties!!!
I have to agree to disagree on the "abortion has become its banner" statement.

Personally, I think all feminists, myself included, simply want to see the legal right of a woman to CHOOSE abortion, should she not want to stay pregnant and give birth, to remain in place. What I strongly object to is the clear agenda of the anti-choice movement to take that right away from women by severely restricting access to abortion, and, regrettably, some forms of reliable contraception. That's what is going on in several states, including Texas, North Carolina, Wisconsin, North Dakota, Virginia, and Mississippi.

The war on women rages on, no matter how many times conservatives deny there is one.

Outlawing women killing their babies in their wombs is punishment?
That's a socipathic-like statement.
What's truly sociopathic is FORCING women to continue pregnancies they never wanted to begin with, and most likely used reliable contraception to try and PREVENT.

And pregnancy IS a punishment, to a woman who never wanted pregnancy or children in the first place.
